These Are Woeful Times Of Cult Churches And Apostasy

2nd Timothy 4:1-5, “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”

These are deadly woeful times of apostasy in the churches as never seen before. The Lord called me to be an evangelist, a Bible preacher, before I was born in 1967. By God's grace I have fulfilled God's will for my life as a preacher. We read in our text passage from 2nd Timothy 4:5 that the evangelist is to WATCH IN ALL THINGS. That means to be on guard against heresy creeping into the church. It means to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 1:3). By God's grace I have done so and will continue for my remaining time on earth. I am doing the work of an evangelist. I am making full proof of my ministry for the Lord Jesus Christ.

In 2014 my eyes were opened to the deadly apostasy in the Bob Jones University (BJU) camp today. Bob Jones College was founded in 1927 by Dr. Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968). Dr. Bob Jones Sr. was a godly man who preached a free grace Gospel. Unfortunately, after “Dr. Bob” (as his friends called him) went to Heaven, the Devil began to creep heresies into their camp. Over recent decades BJU has deteriorated into full-blown Calvinism. Here is the damnable Satanic sermon that BJU president Dr. Steve Pettit preached on January 26th, 2015 to 2,700 BJU students and faculty. In this despicable sermon, Dr. Pettit errantly teaches that you cannot merely accept Christ as your personal Savior and go to Heaven. In addition, Pettit says you must persevere to live the Christian life. He says you must start, run and faithfully finish the race of the sanctified Christian life or else you will go to Hell forever!!! Folks, that is NOT the free grace Gospel. That is NOT the gift of God. That is not the instantaneous new birth by which we enter into the Kingdom of God by faith alone.

There is no cesspool of liars and iniquity like the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. Harvest is full of Bob Jones University alumni. Sadly, Pensacola Christian College (PCC) is in bed with the Bob Jones camp, committing spiritual harlotry by bidding them Godspeed. 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” You'll never hear anybody in leadership at Campus Church (which is on the campus of PCC, or anybody in the PCC camp today expose the dirty, lying, apostate, damnable, Bob Jones cult today!!! Well I am exposing them...



Perhaps some of my blog readers and web visitors think I spend too much time exposing the evil Bob Jones University cult. But folks, despite all my Bible preaching against them, BJU are still going strong promoting their damnable heresy of “Lordship” salvation. Dr. Steve Pettit is personal buddies with Pastor John MacArthur, These men brag on each other and bid Godspeed to one another. John MacArthur teaches the Devil's lie that children cannot be saved. According to Dr. MacArthur, Jesus didn't have God's blood in His veins, which is a denial of Christ's deity. Why oh why are pastors silent about false teachers today?

Why won't Jeff Redlin (senior pastor at Campus Church in Pensacola, Florida), and the administration of Pensacola Christian College (PCC), take a stand against the demonic Bob Jones University camp today? No, instead they wickedly bid Godspeed to them!!! PCC permits their students to play in intercollegiate sports with BJU, yoking together with unbelievers. The Bob Jones crowd are not saved!!! No one is saved who preaches Calvinism (i.e., the doctrinal falsehoods of an unsaved infidel named John Calvin, 1509-1564). I care. God cares. Why don't today's Baptist pastors care? We need to expose, mark and avoid these devil-preachers, not pat them on the back and go along with them in apostasy!

Harvest Baptist Church on Guam fully supports BJU today. Harvest broadcasts all of BJU's daily chapel sermons throughout Micronesia, damning men's souls with Steve Pettit's counterfeit gospel. Tragically, Steve Pettit preaches the exact same Calvinist (aka. Lordship salvation) false gospel as does Miss Ellen G. White of the Seventh-Day Adventist cult. It blows my mind that the PCC camp is okay with this Satanic filth! Dear reader, right doctrine matters!

I said RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!!

The wicked Bob Jones University (BJU) camp today don't care about right doctrinal. They don't care about the accuracy of the Gospel. They don't care about the purity of God's Word, evidenced by their use, sale and promotion of umpteen different Bible revisions. The BJU camp are Neo-evangelicals, going along with every wind of doctrine. They often allow multiple gospels floating around in their churches, a house confused. Should we be surprised that multiple plans of salvation exist, when they have multiple different conflicting Bible revisions. For example: Look at what the damnable Easy-To-Read Version (ERV) says in Mark 1:15.

I wish with all my heart that I could convince more Christians to care and get involved exposing these FALSE TEACHERS in the Bob Jones cult today. Pastor Marty Herron is a liar, a wicked false teacher, and a backstabbing weasel who hurt me deeply when I begged for his help and a second chance on Guam. As the shameful senior pastor of Harvest Baptist Church of Guam, that shallow wicked man threw me under the bus and left me for dead. When my life was at rock bottom and I pleaded for his pastoral help, he backed up the bus to run over me again, murdering me! Marty Herron deserves to be convicted of murder and put into prison for the rest of his life for what he did to me on Guam.

Marty Herron ruined my life and got away with it. My daily prayer is for God to punish that man, to make him wish he had never been born, and to vindicate me for being the only one who TOLD THE TRUTH on Guam at Harvest Baptist Church (Romans 3:4; Galatians 6:7). For seven long and painful years (2014-2021) I had no church family because of the ungodly selfishness, cruelty, wickedness, apostasy and hatred of Marty Herron Gary Walton. These disgraceful cowards ought not be allowed behind any pulpit, because they are theologically incompetent fools and don't care about hurting people. They are mere salary-suckers parasiting off of naïve churches. If I had my way both of those men would be rotting in prison for the rest of their lives, where they belong. There is no crime like spiritual crime!!!

But if the Word of God be true (and it is), God will punish these evil religious men far beyond what I ever could. God will burn them in Hell for ever and ever because of their damnable counterfeit gospel (Matthew 7:21-23). The Bob Jones crowd require that you “repent and turn away from your sinning” to get to Heaven. That is NOT the Gospel. That is NOT God's free grace. Jesus came to die on the cross to save us from our sins (John 3:17), not make us turn away from our sins or else He won't save us! The former rests completely in Christ's sacrifice on the cross; but the latter depends upon our behaviour improving, which is works! I am sick and tired of being abused, ostracized and hated by the damned Bob Jones University cult, because I am right and they are wrong about how to get to Heaven. I am following the inspired King James Bible, but the Bob Jones cult are following fables and the traditions of men.

Pastor Harry A. Ironside (1876-1951) accurately explains: “What Is The Gospel.” The Bob Jones crowd are arrogant. When I saw them on Guam they laughed in my face. Others ignored me, looking over my shoulder like I didn't exist. My ungodly neighbours refused to wave back at me and ostracized me at the hand of their God-damned pastors! And they are damned of God according to Galatians 1:6-9. Anyone who preaches ANOTHER GOSPEL, even if it be an angel from Heaven, is accursed by God. Read it for yourself in Galatians 1:7-9.

These are woeful times of apostasy in the churches. I even know of graduates of Hyles-Anderson College (HAC) who refuse to expose John MacArthur as a false teacher. SHAME ON THEM!!! The greatest sin of our generation is INDIFFERENCE!!! Where are the 7,000 today who have not bowed their knee to Baal? Now is the time to stand dear saint of God. If you have a computer, speak out against the Bob Jones University camp on the internet.

Give them bad ratings on Google. Type negative and edifying comments about them on their thousands of YouTube videos. Expose their lies! Expose the Bob Jones crowd on Facebook. We need to expose Marty Herron, Chuck Phelps, Sam Horn, Gary Walton, harvest Baptist Church on Guam, John MacArthur, Adrian Rodgers, Ray Comfort, John Hagee, Charles Stanley, Beth Moore, Joel Osteen, Pat Robertson, John MacArthur, Paul Washer, and thousands more Calvinists and false teachers concerning God's plan of salvation!!! We have a duty as believers to REFUTE ALL WORKS OF DARKNESS (Ephesians 5:11). Christian laymen have a duty to God to REBUKE THEM SHARPLY that they might be sound in the faith (Titus 1:10-13). Are you rebuking them? I am friend. I am, and by God's grace I intend to continue exposing them, because their lying tongues are damning men's souls to eternal fire.

You Can KNOW That You Are Eternally Saved Securely

Luke 10:20, “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

We are living in perilous times of woeful false teaching and deceit everywhere. Consider this damnable heresy preached by Dr. Steve Pettit at Bob Jones University:

“You can't just speak about getting saved, and you accepted Christ, and then that's it! There is a justification; There is a sanctification; There's ultimately a glorification, and though there are three parts, they are all part of the whole, and you cannot separate them. In order for you to qualify for the award, you have to get into the race, you have to stay in the race, and you have to finish the race. If you want to win, you have to run to the end; and winning in the Christian life is everything, because if you lose—if you don't finish—you lose everything—you lose your SOUL. And so, the Christian race is the life of faith that begins, is run, and is finished when we cross over into Heaven!” —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?” - 11:34)
Dear reader, this is why so many multitudes of churchgoers are utterly confused about salvation nowadays. False teachers like Steve Pettit are incompetent theologians, wrestling the Scriptures to their own destruction. 2nd Peter 3:16-17,  “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction
Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.Steve Pettit is unlearned and unstable, preaching another perverse gospel of the Devil. Marty Herron, Church Phelps, Sam Horn, Gary Walton and John MacArthur are all sinister ministers, preaching a counterfeit gospel of partial faith in Christ plus works!!!

According to the preceding damnable quote from Steve Pettit, you cannot merely profess faith in Jesus Christ to be saved. Dr. Pettit insists that you must persevere to live the Christian life or else you do not get to go to Heaven. This is not the free grace Gospel.

Jesus plainly teaches us as born-again believers in Luke 10:20b, “rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.Dear friend, my name is written in Heaven in the Lamb's Book of Life, and yours is to if you are a redeemed child of God. If you have never come to a place in your life where you realized that you are a guilty sinner in God's sight (Romans 3:19-20), and placed your childlike faith in the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ crucified on the cross, buried and bodily resurrected the third day (1st Corinthians 15:1-4), then you are NOT a child of God yet. John 3:3b, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.Have you been born-again dear friend? I have, when I was 13 years old.

The fact that Jesus tells us as believers to REJOICE THAT OUR NAMES ARE WRITTEN IN HEAVEN, evidences that a believer CAN in fact KNOW 100% beyond any shadow of a doubt that we are saved. How else could we rejoice that our name is recorded in the Lamb's Book of Life, unless we can assuredly KNOW that we are presently and forever saved?

Dr. Steve Pettit falsely teaches that: “You can't just speak about getting saved, and you accepted Christ, and then that's it!

But what does the Bible say? Acts 16:30b-31, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. So according to the inspired Holy Bible Steve Pettit is a dirty liar!!!

In fact you CAN JUST SPEAK ABOUT GETTING SAVED, AND YOU ACCEPTED CHRIST, AND THAT'S IT!!!!!!!

On the blessed Day of Pentecost in Acts chapter two, there were 3,000 souls saved in just one day. They simply BELIEVED the Gospel and were saved (Acts 2:41).

In Acts chapter ten we read about Cornelius and a group of people who were led by God's Spirit to go hear the Apostle Peter. As Peter preached the Gospel (the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen the third day), Cornelius and the people with him who heard the Gospel BELIEVED and were saved in an instant (Acts 10:43-44).

Nowhere in the inspired King James Bible do we ever read about someone who was saved over time, as a progressive process. No, people were always saved in an instant, by faith alone in Jesus Christ.

The thief on the cross who repented was saved that very day, to whom Jesus said they would both be in Paradise by day's end.

Jesus led the Samaritan woman at Jacob's Well to salvation in an instant. She simply received the water of life which Jesus gave her by faith in Him. What a wonderful Savior!!!

Dear reader, the Bible says that YOU CAN KNOW 100% that you are saved, that your name is written in Heaven. No such rejoicing would be possible unless salvation happened in an instant by faith alone!!! Please beware of anyone who falsely teaches that you cannot be saved immediately. 

Here is another damnable quote from Evangelist Paul Washer:

“We talk about the Germans of the 20th centuries that brought on their higher criticism. It is not near as dangerous as conservative Baptists with their gospel reductionism. How dare we, all these stupid evangelists walking around telling men after they've made some little prayer that they need to write their name in the back of their Bible, and put the date and if the Devil ever comes to them, they need to show him that. That is Roman superstition, it is not the gospel of Jesus Christ. You see we've turned the gospel into a flu-shot.” 
Paul Washer - LISTEN TO THIS!!!!

That is some perverse dangerous talk by Pastor Washer. If you understand that Paul Washer is a staunch Calvinist, then you understand that he believes perseverance is necessary to get to Heaven. Like the demonic Bob Jones University camp today, Paul Washer believes that you cannot merely get saved by accepting Christ and that's it. These devil-preachers all embellish the Gospel, adding works to faith, corrupting the truth of God's Word.

Friend, you certainly CAN write down your name, date and place that you were born-again. The very moment that you place your childlike trust in the blessed Savior, God works the supernatural miracle of salvation. John 1:12-13, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” Beware of any false prophet who errantly tells you that you must prove the reality of the genuineness of your faith by your works. Works have no place in the Gospel (Romans 3:20). 

Jesus said that we CAN KNOW that our name is written in Heaven. Only instant, immediate and eternal confirmation of our eternal security in Jesus Christ could allow such bold confidence. The Lord made it very clear that we ought to REJOICE THAT OUR NAMES ARE WRITTEN IN HEAVEN in the Lamb's Book of Life. This could not be possible unless salvation were instant. That means Steve Pettit and Paul Washer are theological LIARS!!! You must decide dear reader whom to believe. Either Jesus is telling THE TRUTH. Or else Steve Pettit and Paul Washer are telling THE TRUTH. But it cannot be both! I'll believe Jesus.

The Parable Of The Sower And The Seeds Proves Lordship Salvation Is A Lie

Luke 8:11-15, “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.”

We see this truth taught in The Parable Of The Sower And The Seeds in Luke 8:11-15. The “seed” is the Word of God (vs. 11). Some seeds fell among thorns, other upon shallow ground, and some on fertile ground. These were all believers! Only the first group were unsaved, the seeds which fell upon stony ground and the birds (Devil) took the seeds away. The last three groups were all born-again believers.

Obviously then, not all Christians mature to perfection as the Bob Jones University camp foolishly teaches. These ungodly Calvinists confuse multiples of people, leading worldly believers to think they are not really saved. Among the names of infidels in this corrupt groups are Marty Herron, Steve Pettit, Sam Horn, Chuck Phelps, John MacArthur and countless more heretics of the faith.

The Bible says that some seeds fell on shallow ground. These are believers who quit church and never grow in the Lord. Infidels like Chuck Phelps and Ray Comfort claim they were never saved at all, but the Bible says such believers are simply shallow. They are carnal (1st Corinthians 3:1). In the heretical mindset of Steve Pettit, Chuck Phelps, Marty Herron, Ray Comfort, Gary Walton and other reprobates of the faith, carnal Christians don't exist. There is no middle ground in their foolish thinking! They say you were never saved.

The Lord spoke in His parable about the seeds which were “choked” by the cares and riches of this world (Luke 8:14). There are tens of millions of choked believers today in the world. They have been distracted from serving Christ. They have been thrown off course because of “the sin which doth so easily beset us” (Hebrews 12:1b). They have been diverted because of the love of money and the riches of this temporal world. But they are saved!!! The Lord simply said they didn't mature in the Lord for various reasons, but Jesus never said that this proved they were never saved at all. You dear friend must choose whether to follow the theology of Jesus Christ, or the corrupt junk theology of the demonic Bob Jones University camp today! I'm going to follow Jesus' teachings!!!

Dear reader, you CAN get saved in an instant and KNOW IT 100%! Steve Pettit says you cannot! What a devil. What a liar! The Bob Jones crowd are vile, corrupt and must be exposed for the false teachers that they are!!! I may be rude in my speech when I preach, but I am not ignorant of the knowledge of the Word of God. The Bible when taken at face value is so simple. It is only when ungodly men, who wrestle the Scriptures, pervert God's Gospel of free grace. What saddens me the most is that over 95% of professed Bible-believing Christians today, foolishly go along with the Bob Jones camp, remaining silent about their damnable heresies. Steve Pettit needs to be exposed and banned from speaking behind any pulpit.

It is tragic that Pensacola Christian College (PCC), and their Campus Church pastored by Jeff Redlin, cowardly remain silent about the Bob Jones cult! It is wickedness! Shame on Pastor Jeff Redlin for not standing against false doctrine! Lordship salvation is of the Devil, yet the PCC camp bid Godspeed to the Bob Jones cult, allowing their students to play intercollegiate sports together. That confuses the students! I am tired of hearing pastors like Jeff Redlin say superficially that he is against “Lordship salvation, but then he supports the BJU camp and doesn't call them out to expose them. Why oh why not? If Hell is real, and lost sinners will burn in fire forever who die in their sins, and “Lordship” salvation is a perversion of grace that offers men a false hope of salvation, then we all have a grave duty as preachers to cry aloud against the Devil's ministers who preach “Lordship” salvation.

Kindly said, Pastor Jeff Redlin needs to get right with God, and so does the entire Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp. “Lordship” salvation is no trifle matter. The Bible is abundantly clear that a man is saved by faith alone. Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” The only requirement is that he admit he is a guilty sinner for breaking God's commandments. A man must know what he is being saved from. That is what repentance is, a man changing his mind toward God (Acts 20:21), believing the Good News of Christ crucified, buried and risen (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

I recently heard about a Hyles-Anderson College pastor who supports Pastor John MacArthur and his pathetic ministry. Please say it isn't so! Sadly, it is true. Folks, that just shows how apostasy, how the Devil, has crept into so many churches today. John MacArthur teaches that children cannot be saved. His plan of salvation is so complicated that he says only adults can go to Heaven. Mr. MacArthur is a confused man! The Bible even calls the Gospel “the simplicity that is in Christ” in 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4. Yet John MacArthur wrote a book titled, “Hard To Believe,” in which he foolishly states:
Don’t believe anyone who says it’s easy to become a Christian. Salvation for sinners cost God His own Son; it cost God’s Son His life, and it’ll cost you the same thing. Salvation isn’t gained by reciting mere words. Saving faith transforms the heart, and that in turn transforms behavior. Faith’s fruit is seen in actions, not intentions. There’s no room for passive spectators: words without actions are empty and futile. Remember that what John saw in his vision of judgment was a Book of Life, not a book of Words or Book of Intellectual Musings. The life we live, not the words we speak, reveals whether our faith is authentic.” [emphasis added] —Dr. John MacArthur, “Grace To You,” an updated quote from his book 'Hard To Believe', page 93
Pastor John MacArthur teaches the same Calvinist garbage as Marty Herron, Steve Pettit, Sam Horn, Ray Comfort, Charles Phelps, Gary Walton and thousands of other infidels of the faith. These are men of reprobate minds, flawed concerning the Christian faith, mixing works with faith to corrupt God's Word and cast stumblingblocks before the people. 

The Parable Of The Sower And The Seeds proves that a person can be saved, but not faithfully live the Christian life. The Lord plainly teaches that some believers have fallen by the wayside, unproductive and fruitless for God. Other believers have been choked by the cares, riches and pleasures of this life, fruitless for God. The Bob Jones crowd are very dangerous spiritually, misleading people to doubt their salvation for falling short of perfection. I cannot warn everyone enough to mark, expose and avoid these imposters of the faith who have crept into our churches today. Bob Jones University is of the Devil.

Accepting A Gift Doesn't Require Turning From Sins

Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

If I buy you a gift for your birthday, does your attitude toward anything matter? No. All you need to do is receive the gift. Eternal life is a free gift from God. You can simply take it by faith in Jesus Christ. If you need to have a changed of attitude toward sin, then it cannot be a gift. Behavior modification has nothing to do with the Gospel

I am so sick and tired of hearing corrupt preachers say that until you are ready to turn away from a lifestyle of sinning, you are not ready to be saved. That is bizarre!

Jesus paid for our gift of eternal life with His precious blood (1st Peter 1:18-19). IT IS A GIFT!!! You don't need to have a certain mindset to receive that gift, just simply take it! 

To help understand what the Gospel is and is not, compare it to a birthday present. Someone has already paid for it! All you need to do is accept it.

What Does The Bible Mean To Judge One's Self?

1st Corinthians 11:31-32, “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.”

To judge one's self simply means that if we take care of the sin problem, then God won't have to. For example: 1st Thessalonians 4:6 warns that if we defraud any Christian brother God will avenge that sister or brother, “That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.” If we cheat someone out of money, commit adultery with their spouse, or whatever that offends them, we have an obligation to go make things right with them, which of necessity requires restitution (repayment) and reconciliation (apologizing) to restore harmony. 

This is why God says in Matthew Matthew 5:23-24, "Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.​"​ We cannot be right with God and wrong with man. At a bare minimum we ought to try to be at peace with all men, doing our part to be honest, undo our wrongs and seek forgiveness after we've made restitution and sought reconciliation. In many cases saying I'm sorry” is not enough. There needs to be repayment for damages caused and some form of penance made to the victims. It all depends on the circumstances.

Judging one's self means that we have done all that we can to right a wrong in our past, so that God doesn't have to do it for us. 2nd Corinthians 5:9-11 warns that we will all stand at the Judgment Seat Of Christ in eternity and give account for the good and the bad we've done in the body. 2nd Corinthians 5:9-11, “Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences. Here we learn that the believer's judgment will not be one of punishment for sins in criminal court, but of monetary loss of rewards in civil court for our lack of good character in Christ. 

If we fail to right our wrongs, then God will avenge those whom we have hurt (Romans 12:19-21). Hebrews 13:4 warns that God will judge all adulterers and whoremongers, but marriage is honorable in all. A believer must confess and forsake the sins in one's life to avoid God's judgement. Jesus has already paid for our sins, so there is no punishment, but we must still give account for the sins that we permit in our redeemed state, which will result in loss of rewards (1st Corinthians 3:15).

The Old Testament equivalent to 1st Corinthians 11:31-32 is found in Isaiah 55:7, “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.This passage does NOT speak about salvation, which is by faith alone. Many preachers misinterpret this Scripture passage in the Old Testament. This verse speaks of national healing for the rebellious nation of Israel, which would be equivalent today to the Christian believer. The Church does not replace Israel, but we as God's saints are the chosen ones. We are the kings, priests and princes who shall reign with Christ a thousand years. Only those Jews and Gentiles alike who have been redeemed by faith in Jesus Christ are the true children of Abraham (Galatians 3:9-29). Galatians 3:9, “So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

The Way The Bible Came To Be Proves Its Divine Origin

2nd Timothy 3:15-17, “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.”

I was thinking just now about how beautiful the Holy Bible is. There is no other book like it in the world. ...

“The Bible is no mere book, but a Living Creature, with a power that conquers all that oppose it.” —Napoleon

When men author a book, they simply write one book. But that is not how God gave His Word to mankind. The Lord gave some of it to Isaiah. He gave some of it to Moses. God gave some of it to Daniel the prophet, and to Joel He gave some, and to David and his son Solomon. God gave some of His inspired Words to Peter, James and John, and to Luke and Matthew. All toll, God gave 66 books of the Holy Bible to humanity through approximately 40 different authors.

And if that is not amazing enough dear friend, God gave those 66 books to holy men of old over a time period of approximately 1,500 years. Wow! That is super incredible.

And please also consider, that most of these 40 men never met each other. If they had known each other, it wouldn't have mattered, because they spoke different languages. They were greatly diversified in education, skills, background, ethnicity and culture. Daniel was a brilliant statesman. David was a poor shepherd boy who eventually became a king. Abraham was a herder of animals. Luke was a medical doctor. Matthew was a tax-collector. Peter and John were fishermen. God used these different men, who spanned 1,500 years of human civilization, to give us the individual books comprising the Holy Bible as we know it today.

The odds of such a thing being achieved by a generational conspiracy of men is not only astronomically improbable, but absolutely impossible!!! If men could have written the Bible, they wouldn't have; and if they would have, they couldn't have! 

But wait there's so much more! How did Isaiah know in 700 BC that Christ would be born of a virgin. Isaiah 7:14, “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Here is the New Testament fulfillment of this wonderful Messianic Prophecy:

Matthew 1:20-23, “But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Christ was born of a virgin! Jesus had no earthly biological father. God Himself was Jesus biological Father in Heaven. That is why we properly call Jesus the “only begotten Son of God.” That is why I adamantly reject all these modern Devil's Bibles that remove the word “BEGOTTEN” from John 3:16 and 1st John 3:16, attacking the deity of our great Savior! John 1:12 teaches that every child of God is an adopted son of God. So for these modern Bible perversions to say that Jesus is God's “only son” is heresy! Jesus is GOD'S ONLY BEGOTTEN SON!!! And don't you forget it!

The Holy Bible contains 31% prophecy. The Muslim Koran contains ZERO prophecy! The perverse book of Mormon contains ZERO prophecy! Oh how divine is the inspired King James Bible that you hold in your hand dear saint of God!

Divorced People Are Not garbage

Galatians 6:1-3, “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

I am so sick of today's horrible pastors. Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College (PCC) is a swelling dead corpse of spiritual hypocrites, not a growing church that cares about hurting people and struggling sinners. They talk the talk, but they don't walk the walk.

Senior pastor Jeff Redlin made me feel like garbage in July of 2021 as a divorced person. Shame on him! Redlin enjoys his wife each night, but guys like me are just supposed to be alone for the rest of my life. That is what he told me. What a rotten religious hypocrite!!! Pastor Redlin is why many divorced Christians stay home and refuse to go to church anymore, because he makes them feel like second-class church members and outcasts. He needs to come down off his high-horse. It is clear to me that Pastor Redlin has no brokenness or humility. He gets paid an outrageous salary, which is all that matters to him in my humble opinion. If he really cared about people, then he wouldn't have shunned me as he did.

I wouldn't give you a dime for self-righteous pastors who don't have any compassion for divorced people. Pastor Redlin didn't speak one kind word of compassion for my hurting soul, he selfishly dissed me and went his merry way. That is why America is going to Hell today, because of pastors who merely pursue a career, but don't genuinely care about people. You cannot selectively care about people, which is what Redlin does, and then expect people to respect you as a pastor. I believe in Word of Mouth. If a pastor mistreats people, then he should be publicly exposed as a bad pastor! I can only speak for myself.

I wish these arrogant pastors could lose their wives, and be alone, then they would crawl on their hands and knees like babies begging for their wives back. But when it is you without a wife, they tell you to suffer and be alone because divorced people are not allowed to remarry. I pray and hope one day that Jeff Redlin's wife divorces him!!! Our churches are filled with stuck-up, arrogant, haughty, thuggish, proud, bullies for pastors. Campus Church in Pensacola, Florida reminds me of a religious cult when they ostracize divorced people! Pastors today don't give a damn about hurting people! 

If Pastor Redlin would have simply shown some compassion for my loss and suffering, and told me right away that Campus Church welcomes everybody, there wouldn't have been a problem, but he didn't do that. Instead, he never expressed one word of compassion for my suffering, neck pain, loss of marriage, hurting soul or difficult situation. I told him I was living out of a suitcase in a hotel, and was having difficulty from my neck pain, but he couldn't have cared less. He didn't care about anyone except himself. I have been praying for him, but as a senior pastor he needs to do a lot better. I wouldn't be writing this blog if I thought he gave a damn!

Galatians 6:3, “For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.Incompetent pastors like Jeff Redlin are living large. They've never truly been broken and humbled in life. They run scared, hide behind their wives, and criticize people like me who faithfully stand for THE TRUTH. I detest haughty pastors who think they are something. I know I am nothing. Jesus is the only good thing about me! You've got a bunch of self-righteous hypocrites in the PCC camp, including Jeff Redlin.

They need to fire him at Campus Church and bring in a senior pastor who genuinely cares about hurting people like me. Pastor Redlin made me feel like garbage because he is shallow and doesn't care about anybody except himself. What good that he does, he does to be seen of men, bragging on himself in the pulpit. That is so shallow! Well I am a testimony against him, that he mistreated me when I was hurting and pleaded for his help as a weaker brother in Christ. He left me beaten and bleeding on the ground, walking away in his sinful pride and Pharisaical snobbery. Pastor Jeff Redlin is no friend at midnight!

What You Don't Know Can Hurt You

Genesis 3:1-5, “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.  And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

We know from John 8:44 that the Devil is a liar and the father of all liars! The Devil, Satan, is a murderer and the father of all murderers! John 8:44-45, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.Jesus said that the Devil has no truth in him, because he rejects THE TRUTH! Likewise, the Devil's children will also reject THE TRUTH when we give it to them.

There's a dirty little secret that few home owners know. Dear reader, if you own a home and pay for home-owner's insurance, you had better go read your policy and ask the insurance company if you have what is called a Replacement Clause in your policy. That means if your home burns down they have to replace your home. What many greedy and shady insurance companies do is charge you a bunch of money each year, but then when your home burns to the ground, they'll only pay you a small fraction of what it would actually cost to replace your home. You home might have a market value of $350,000. And to replace it would cost at least $250,000. But the dirty company will cut you a lowball check for $60,000 instead, citing that you didn't have a Replacement Clause in your policy. Go check and see for yourself!

Folks, the Devil is a dirty liar! Many attorneys are dirty liars and thieves! You cannot trust anybody when it comes to money. If it's not in writing it means NOTHING!!! You had better get it in writing, whatever it is, or you have no protections. Aren't you glad and thankful that our great and good God put all His promises in WRITING in the Holy Bible? I sure am thankful. That is why we read in Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.We're got a bunch of false teachers going around today in the churches and Bible colleges, saying things that God did not say in His inspired Word. They are liars! Bob Jones University are liars!

The serpent (Satan) was more subtle than any creature and came to Eve. The serpent LIED to Eve by withholding information. What she didn't know would come back to forever haunt her! The sneaking serpent told Eve that if she disobeyed God she would become as God herself. In a sense she did become as God, being able to make her own decisions between good and evil from that sinful moment forward. But what the serpent DIDN'T TELL EVE was that dire consequences would accompany those new privileges. From now on Eve's protection was gone. From now on she would live and die by her own decisions, and that of her husband and sons when Adam sinned as well. Eve led her husband into sin, and he followed. Eve brought ruin, misery and destruction upon her entire family. This all happened because Eve was misled, uninformed and not told the WHOLE TRUTH!

Ladies and gentlemen, we live in a very dirty, dishonest and greedy society today in America! Realtors know their business inside and out, fully knowing what information to withhold from home buyers and sellers to cost you lots of money and cheat you. The laws can only go so far. Believe me, there are plenty of ways not covered by existing laws for realtors to cost you more money. The same is true of dirty, greedy and dishonest lawyers, which in my opinion include over 90% of lawyers! I don't like attorneys, any of them!!! The lawyers I have met were impatient, bullies and greedy, yet had a shady way of justifying it in their own ungodly minds.

The United States is a very crooked culture of honest thieves, truthful liars and faithful cheaters! Car rental agencies steal money from people within the confines of the law. They are what I justly call honest thieves”! We have a bunch of truthful liars in the pulpit today, like Pastor Marty Herron and Dr. Steve Pettit. Their corrupt preaching is full of half-truths. They propagate a perverse gospel of partial faith in Christ plus forsaking your sinning to be saved. Our homes are full of cheaters whom permit their spouses to commit adultery. They are faithful cheaters! Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

The serpent withheld vital information from Eve. Satan only told Eve what she wanted to hear, and what he wanted her to know. Had Satan told the whole truth, Eve would have ran away in fear for her life! We've got thousands of corrupt Calvinist pastors today (Adrian Rodgers, John Piper, Marty Herron, Gary Walton, Steve Pettit, Chuck Phelps, John MacArthur, Ray Comfort, Paul Washer, Charles Lawson, et cetera) who all pervert the Gospel of free grace. They only tell half the story! They make it sound so good and reasonable that you must forsake your sinful lifestyle to be saved, but they withhold the truth that salvation is solely by faith. They withhold the truth that the only purpose of God's law is to show men their sinnership (Romans 3:19-20). What you don't know can hurt you. In fact, what you don't know can damn your soul to the Lake of Fire forever and ever!!!

The churches of Galatia were happy and content in their heresy. They thought they had been taught the truth. They had been falsely told that circumcision was required to be saved (Galatians 3:1-3). They hadn't been told the truth by the cult who were misleading them that salvation is without the works of the law. The Apostle Paul told them THE WHOLE TRUTH! Friends, I am telling you THE WHOLE TRUTH! Your salvation is of the Lord. Your only part in salvation is to get out of the way and let Jesus save you! God ceased from His works and rested on the seventh day. The Sabbath is a picture of Christ in Whom we REST for eternal life. Hebrews 4:10-11, “For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Friend, you know that we live in a counterfeit culture today. Revelation 12:9, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. People are being deceived about everything from health, government, finances, the economy, money to religion. Anyone who has done research KNOWS that the 911 World Trade Center attacks were a blatant INSIDE JOB. Carefully planted bombs (thermite charges) brought those buildings down by controlled demolition. The planes crashing into them were just a decoy to create confusion. The hoax worked well, a lying wonder of Satan!

Our entire money system is based upon fraud. Since 1913 the Federal Reserve Act has removed all power over currency from Congress and given it to private greedy banksters! Our U.S. dollar as of 1972 had lost 82% of its spending power! The private banks literally determine how hard and long you have to work to pay for a house (your biggest asset) and everything else as well. It is fraud!!! The banks tamper with interest rates, which is how they raise your taxes without you even realizing it. Inflation is a tax ladies and gentlemen! Some of our faithful elected leaders have opened decried government fraud! Sadly, their wise voices have fallen on the deaf ears of indifferent, obese, lazy, lethargic, drug addicted, alcoholic, perverse, sin-loving, ungodly Americans! Sin always undermines any nation!!!

One reason I started my website ministry since 2002 is to help educate Christians. I wanted to make my website a bastion (a stronghold) of truth in cyberspace. I like to call my ministry websites “concentrated truth.” I didn't want to boggle down my websites with a bunch of boring documentation. Other websites already do that! I wanted to create a place on the internet that gets to the point, simplifies things, and always keeps Jesus Christ at the center of everything! Of course, my main goal has always been soulwinning, to preach the Gospel of free grace to a lost world that needs redemption through faith in Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:9).

What you don't know can hurt you! That is why Pastor Joel Osteen is so deadly. It's what he DOESN'T say that makes Osteen so dangerous. Look at the demonic servant Kanye West gettin' down dancing at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. That is not of God. Kanye West and Joel Osteen are of the Devil, which the All Seeing Eye seen in the video evidences. It is the occultist's way of saying to all other occultists: “Hey look everybody, the Devil has crept into the church! The New World Order is going strong, just as Alice Bailey plotted.” This is all by design folks! The diabolical Satanic plot for a New World Order has been in the planning for millennia since the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-11).

The hundreds of English Bible revisions today are all a part of the Devil's New World Order, creeping fraud into the churches! I told you deception was everywhere! As believers we have the joy of the Lord. When Jesus is in the boat, you can smile at the storm!

The Time Is HERE When People Won't Endure Sound Doctrine

 2nd Timothy 4:1-4, “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

We are now living in those apostate times foretold in the Word of God, when people would no longer ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE; but rather, HEAP TO THEMSELVES TEACHERS (take a look at Hillsong's list of derelict preachers), HAVING ITACHING EARS (i.e., only wanting to hear a positive message). Pastor Joel Osteen is one of the worst offenders...


JOEL OSTEEN TALKS ABOUT WHY HE DOES NOT PREACH ON HELL

Someone asked me today if we are supposed to prosper as Christians? They heard it from a TV preacher and wanted to know if this is Biblical. Here was my email response: 

Yes, that is true, God wants us to prosper, but that might mean ending up in a wheelchair with our legs cut off. What saith the Scripture? Hebrews chapter 11 has often been called The Hall Of Faith,” because it lists all the mighty works done throughout the Old Testament by the saints of God. By faith Noah moved with fear and built an ark. By faith David took a sling and went out to fight the giant Goliath. By faith Rahab hid the Jewish spies and helped them win the battle. By faith Abraham left his home country and sojourned in a strange land far away. But notice what we read starting in Hebrews 11:36...

Hebrews 11:36-40, “And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.”
BY FAITH some of God's children were sawn asunder. It is believed that wicked king Manasseh sawed his grandfather Isaiah into pieces. SOURCE. BY FAITH others were tormented, afflicted, slain with the sword, imprisoned, forced to hide in caves and killed. So we see that our FAITH can sometimes cost us dearly and get us into a lot of trouble! All of the disciples of Christ were martyred except John, who was marooned on the isle of Patmos where he penned the Revelation of Jesus Christ. So, in God's sight all of these dear saints who suffered, even unto death, were “PROSPEROUS.”

Here is more Scriptural proof...
1st Peter 1:6-9, “Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.”
The Bible calls our many afflictions, sufferings and trials for Christ MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD that perisheth. The benefits reaped by the trial of our faith are eternal rewards and joy in the Lord. God uses the hardships in our daily lives to conform us into the glorious image of Jesus Christ (Romans 8:29). When reprobates like Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, Pat Robertson and Joyce Meyer (to name but a few infidels) speak of health, wealth and prosperity, they are blaspheming the Word of God.

The popular health, wealth and prosperity Charismatic movement is of the Devil, rooted in greed. Take a look at what God says about these evil fakes in the pulpit today...

2nd Peter 2:1-3, “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken ofAnd through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

We see several truths to take away from the preceding passage of Scripture:

First, THERE SHALL BE false teachers among you! There will never be a time when false teachers don't prey upon the people. The love of money is the root of all evil (1st Timothy 6:10).

Second, they will bring in DAMNABLE HERESIES, some even denying they Lord. Dr. Steve Pettit has brought DAMNABLE HEREIES into Bob Jones University!

Third, the Bible says that because of these religious clowns (by reason of whom), THE WAY OF TRUTH SHALL BE EVIL SPOKEN OF. This means millions of people are going to Hell someday because they were turned away from the Gospel by greedy televangelists and corrupt Bible colleges! Nothing has turned sincere people away from the truth of the Gospel as has the greedy health, wealth and prosperity crowd. Benny Hinn, Peter Popoff, Mike Murdock, Steve Pettit, Marty Herron, Steven Furtick are all greedy church parasites whose damnation slumbereth not!

Fourth, the Bible says that THROUGH COVETEOUSNESS shall they with subtle, insincere and deceptive words MAKE MERCHANDISE OF the people. Take a look at the Satanism promoted by The 700 Club! Pat Robertson and company claim to see people's cancer and brain tumors being healed through the TV. Of course, not one case of healing has ever been legitimately documented medically by their shady outfit. Yet, Pat Robertson's hoax of a ministry takes in over $600,000,000 each year! The 700 Club is of the Devil.

Fifth, God's judgment is already upon them, they are DAMNED ALREADY!

The time has come dear friends. THE TIME HAS COME when people will no longer tolerate sound doctrine. That is the real reason why Joel Osteen won't preach about Hell fire, damnation and brimstone, because he would be preaching to a very small crowd! He wouldn't be able to live in his multiple mansions anymore, or drive his luxury cars! Joel Osteen is a disgusting infidel who preys upon wicked people who refuse to listen to sound doctrine! Joel owns at least two homes. One is worth $2,900,000 and has 5,900 square feet in Houston. The other is worth $10,500,000 and has 17,000 square feet! That is sickening!!! How does that compare to John the Baptist or the humble Apostle Paul who needed to sew tents to supplement his income as a preacher? Joel Osteen is no friend of God and is an enemy of truth and righteousness!!!

I used to think that TV preachers were solely to blame for misleading the people. But then I realized that the Bible doesn't say that. The Bible teaches in our text passage that the time will come when people WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE. Folks, there are godly preachers all across the United States today (e.g., Pastor Bob Gray Sr., Max Younce, Steven Anderson, Ralph Yankee Arnold, Clarence Sexton, Jeff Fugate, Roger Jimenez, et cetera). But Americans by large don't want to listen to those Bible preaching men of God! They want to hear infidels like Joel Osteen tell them how good they are. They want to hear Pat Robertson make empty promises of health, wealth and prosperity if you give them MONEY! They want to hear Joseph Prince speak in demonic tongues and take their money. They want to hear Benny Hinn make false promises of healing and wealth. Al of these FALSE TEACHERS share one thing in common, which is that they are all MULTI-MILLIONAIRES!!!

The problem is not just ungodly lying preachers today; but moreover, the hundreds of millions of ungodly people who empower them by financially supporting them and following their evil ways. The TIME IS HERE when people will not endure sound doctrine. Jeremiah 5:31, “The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

At Calvary

Luke 23:33, “And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.”
Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified, 
Knowing not it was for me He died 
On Calvary. 
Mercy there was great, and grace was free; 
Pardon there was multiplied to me; 
There my burdened soul found liberty 
At Calvary.
Dear friend, if you use the Devil's modern Bible revisions, then “Calvary” may be an unfamiliar term to you, because they have completely removed this precious word from the text!!!
KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) — Luke 23:33, And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.”

ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION (ESV) — Luke 23:33, “And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left.

NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE (NASB) — Luke 23:33, “And when they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left.

NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (NIV) — Luke 23:33, “When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left.”
The skull?
Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified, 
Knowing not it was for me He died 
On the Skull. 
Mercy there was great, and grace was free; 
Pardon there was multiplied to me; 
There my burdened soul found liberty 
At the Skull.
Really folks? Really?

Here is another good reason to trash your modern trashy Bible revision. They are trash! Please, if you have a modern Bible version, toss it right into your garbage pail. Spit on it! Rip some pages out of it! Urinate on it if you want! But please don't leave it lying around your home for your loved ones to find, anymore than you would leave arsenic or cyanide rat poison lying around your home. I keep a few false Bibles on hand for reference, and I literally took a thick black permanent marker and wrote in bold letters front and back on the covers: POSION!!! You say, “You desecrated a Bible?” No, I safeguarded a poisonous text! I do that just in case I suddenly die and someone inherits my book collection. I don't want anyone else to get poisoned who may be unlearned.

Why Repentance Is Not An Issue To Worry About

We've got a bunch of preachers all drawing their own lines on what repentance means. But we don't need to do that! We already KNOW what it means: "A CHANGE OF MIND." Repentance and believing happen at the same time! I love what Spurgeon said:
“Repentance will not make you see Christ; but to see Christ will give you repentance. You may not make a Christ out of your repentance, but you must look for repentance to Christ. The Holy Ghost, by turning us to Christ, turns us from sin. Look away, then, from the effect to the cause, from your own repenting to the Lord Jesus, who is exalted on high to give repentance.” —Pastor Charles Spurgeon; “All Of Grace,” Chapter 11 - “Alas! I Can Do Nothing”
We have heard that "turning from sin" is so awful, horrible and unbiblical that we freak out at the very mention of the term. But repentance is a turn (a change of mind). I think Pastor Harry Ironside (1876-1951) nailed it 100% correct:
“Which comes first, repentance or faith? In Scripture we read, 'Repent ye, and believe the gospel.' Yet we find true believers exhorted to 'repent, and do the first works.' So intimately are the two related that you cannot have one without the other. The man who believes God repents; the repentant soul puts his trust in the Lord when the Gospel is revealed to him. Theologians may wrangle over this, but the fact is, no man repents until the Holy Spirit produces repentance in his soul through the truth. No man believes the Gospel and rests in it for his own salvation until he has judged himself as a needy sinner before God. And this is repentance.” (Except Ye Repent, p. 16)
I have no problem with repentance as turning from sin in the limited sense of a man turning to Christ from the condemnation that sin brings, which is death. That is what Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980) meant in this quote:
There are those hyper-dispensationalists who think that John the Baptist preached a different Gospel from Christ when he commanded repentance (Matt. 3:2). But it is the same repentance Jesus commanded in Matthew 4:17, in Luke 13:3 and 5, and the same repentance that Paul preached in Athens that God “now commandeth all men every where to repent” (Acts 17:30 31). Repentance is not a different plan of salvation from having faith: it is part of the same plan of salvation. Or rather repentance is simply another way of describing or looking at the plan of salvation. One who turns from sin to God has done so by trusting in Jesus Christ. A change of mind toward sin is necessarily involved in saving faith. [emphasis added] SOURCE: Evangelist John R. Rice, “Acts: Filled With The Spirit,” pp. 251-252; Sword Of The Lord, Murfreesboro, Tennessee; ©1963
Dr. Rice understood that believing on Christ IS TO TURN FROM SIN. I have no problem with that! But this is not what most preachers mean today when they tell you to repent “OF YOUR SINS” or “TURN FROM YOUR SINS.” They all draw the line in different places. Some say you must literally cease from a lifestyle of sinful behavior (this is what Bob Jones University teaches). Others say that you must only be willing to turn from sin (that is what Jack Chick and David Cloud teach). And then some preachers, like Phil Kidd and Sam Adams, teach that you didn't get saved unless you're life has visibly changed. Folks, we don't need to draw any lines, thankfully, because getting saved does not involve our attitude toward forsaking sin in our life, not one bit. Getting saved has nothing to do with your behavior, neither before or after you get born-again. Salvation is exclusively of the Lord (Jonah 2:9). Our part is only to BELIEVE. John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”

Oh foolish preachers! The Bible plainly teaches that the only purpose of the law in salvation is to give men THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN!!! Repentance is a change of mind toward God, so that you BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST to be saved (Acts 16:30-31). You don't need to forsake the world, promise to do better in the future, turn away from your sinful ways, or turn over a new leaf to receive God's FREE GIFT (Romans 5:15). Jesus Christ made the payment for your sins on the cross. Salvation is strictly a matter of admitting you are a guilty sinner and accepting Jesus' sacrifice on the cross as full payment for your sins. That's it dear friend! FOR BY THE LAW IS THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN!!! ...
Romans 3:19-20, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.”
Repentance only involves our attitude toward our legal status in God's court system. We think differently toward God. We stop boasting of our own self-righteous WORKS and REST in Christ alone. The Bible says we are GUILTY! That is exactly what Romans 3:19 teaches, and is the very purpose for which the Old Testament law was given. Christ has already made the payment for our crimes. God the Father is our eternal Judge. To Be saved we must receive Christ's payment. We do this by faith, simply by taking God at His Word as recorded in the Holy Bible. Our attitude toward committing further sins has absolutely NOTHING to do with the fact that Jesus has already made full payment for our crimes. I wish preachers would understand this great Bible truth! JESUS PAID IT ALL!!!

God gave the law to silence every mouth, so that every human being would BECOME GUILTY before God (Romans 3:19-20). Repentance is a change of mind that causes a man to BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST TO BE SAVED. Pastor Sam Adams gets that 100% correct, but then he goes horribly astray by making repentance something more, claiming that it involves a strong desire to forsake one's sins. Clearly we know that this is not Bible repentance, because it requires a sinner to commit to reform to be saved. This goes far beyond giving “THE KNOWLDGE OF SIN,” which is the sole purpose of God's law in salvation. Repentance is entirely a matter of “acknowledging of the truth
” (2nd Timothy 2:25b).
"Repentance is the recognition of my sinnership — the owning before God that I am as vile as He has declared me to be in His holy Word." SOURCE: Except Ye Repent, by Dr. Harry Ironside, chapter 3
The Bible doesn't recognize repentance as being an act different from believing. So we don't need to worry about it. If you know you are a sinner in need of salvation, that is all you need to know. Simply believe that Christ died on the cross for your sins. Believe that He was buried and three days later Christ bodily resurrected (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). If that is your only hope for Heaven you are saved eternally.

Beware Of Evangelist Leonard Ravenhill's Counterfeit Gospel

Galatians 4:16-17, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them.”

Kindly said, in the following sermon video clip Evangelist Leonard Ravenhill (1907-1994) is corrupting the Word of God and misleading people by confusing sanctification with justification. ...


Repentance, Regeneration, and the Glory of God

I admire Ravenhill's zeal but it is misguided zeal at best. Galatians 4:16-17, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them.” We read the same thing concerning the Jews in the Holy Bible:
Romans 10:1-4, “Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.”
The Jews were devout worshippers in the Apostle Paul's time. Even today in 2021 religious Jews are very devout, loyal and diligent in their commitment and worship of their God of Judaism. Unfortunately, today just like back in Bible days, the Jews have a zeal without knowledge! They were going about to establish THEIR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!

We still see this salvation by works heresy everywhere today, appearing in its various forms. What Leonard Ravenhill is preaching is the same Calvinistic garbage that Paul Washer, Ray Comfort, John MacArthur, Marty Herron, Steve Pettit and other infidels of the Christ faith preach! Dear reader, right words matter! Right doctrine matters! The Truth matters!!! I am so sick and tired of hearing pastors, churches and Bible colleges claim to believe that THE TRUTH is important, while they hobnob with Pastor John MacArthur and Bob Jones University (BJU) that bids him 100% Godspeed!!! It is WICKEDNESS!!! BJU needs to be marked and avoided (Romans 16:17-18).

Pilgrim's Progress author John Bunyan (1628-1688) said it best:
“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people.” —Evangelist John Bunyan
I agree with Leonard Ravenhill in the preceding sermon clip that likely less than 5% of professed Christians in America are truly born-again, but it is not because of easy-believism—it is because of false religion, misunderstood repentance, Calvinism (aka, "Lordship" salvation), false Bibles and shoddy presentations of the Gospel. Evangelist Alexander Marshall (1846-1928) had repentance right doctrinally:
“I HAVE NOT REPENTED ENOUGH”

What do you mean? “I am not sorry enough for my sins.”

And if you were very sorry, would God be more willing to save you than He is now? “I think so.”

Then you are completely mistaken.

“But does it not say, unless we repent we shall perish?”

Yes; but what do you think is the Scriptural significance of “repentance”? If you say “sorrow for sin” you are wrong. It does not mean sorrow for sin: it means a CHANGE OF MIND (Matt. 21:29). This change will doubtless produce sorrow; but sorrow and repentance are two very different things (Heb. 12:17. margin, and II Cor. 7:9). When God calls on you to “repent, and believe the Gospel,” He wishes you to lay aside your wrong thoughts, and believe the glad tidings that He proclaims to you. Formerly you may have imagined that you were required to feel very sorry before being saved. Change your mind. You may have supposed you must first “feel” some great change in order to know you were saved. Change your mind. First believe in God's great love to you, as revealed in His gospel, and you will KNOW that you have eternal life (John 5:24).

SOURCE: The Horrible Misrepresentation Of Evangelist Alexander Marshall

Yes, that is excellent. Mr. Marshall is 100% correct! Yet, some unlearned and/or heretical person changed his tract, completely removing the preceding section on repentance from the work. Marshall plainly says that sinners are saved by BELIEVING THE GOSPEL, that is, he says, “to lay aside your wrong thoughts [Repentance], and believe the glad tidings [Gospel] that He proclaims to you.”

What I just shared with you from Alexander Marshall is drastically different than what Leonard Ravenhill is preaching! There are not two Gospels. Galatians 1:6-7, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.” I am sick and tired of today's haughty self-righteous preachers placing demands upon lost sinners which God Himself does not place upon them.

Nowhere in the Word of God are we told that to be saved a person must repent “of your sins.” Repent, yes, but of one's unbelief. Since the only sin that can keep a person out of Heaven is UNBELIEF, then that is the only sin which you need to change your mind about to be saved. As we just read, Alexander Marshall said it very well. Hebrews 4:2, “For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” Carefully notice that it wasn't their refusal to repent of their sins that caused the Jews to perish in the Wilderness, it was their lack of FAITH in the Gospel.

Dear friend, beware of these corrupt well-meaning preachers today who pressure people to give up your sinning to receive God's gift of eternal life. Hello all you Calvinists, it is a “GIFT.” Somewhere along the way the concept of a gift has been lost in evangelical circles. In classic Satanic deception, false teachers will insist that eternal life is still a free gift without works, but if you're life hasn't changed you didn't really get saved. What a contradiction! A “gift means that once I take it, then it is mine forever and the manner of lifestyle I choose to live has absolutely NOTHING to do with whether I received the gift or not! Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Bible doesn't call eternal life a trade, exchange or something that will cost us anything! Pastor John MacArthur says eternal life is a trade, an exchange. Boy, he sure was inspired by demons when MacArthur called eternal life an exchange! And then there is Evangelist Billy Graham, who horribly said that eternal life will cost you something! What is all this nonsensical talk about exchanging, trading and costing us to be saved? 
“Now you say, 'Brother Hyles, you make an issue.' You dead sure better know I'll make an issue!” BATTLE OF THE AGES (MP3, Dr. Jack Hyles, “The King James Bible crowd is going to come out on top!”)
And I'll make an issue too, bless God! Right doctrine matters!!! All these ignorant preachers running around today telling people to repent “OF THEIR SINS didn't get that from the inspired King James Bible. Repentance is nothing more than you acknowledging before a holy God that you are a guilty sinners, so that seeing your need you'll BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST and be saved. Acts 16:30b-31, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” Nothing more is required or permissible. Salvation is by faith alone!

Repentance is automatically included with believing. Repentance and faith are two sides of the same coin. That is why in the beautiful Gospel of John we find the word “believe” mentioned 88 times, but the word “repent” is not found even once. The Gospel of John is God's Gospel tract to humanity, written to show all men the simple way of salvation through faith in the GOOD NEWS of Christ crucified on a cross, buried and bodily risen three days later. John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” Simply believe oh guilty sinner and you will be immediately, irrevocably and forever born-again!!!
